After some hesitation among some clubs, the Desert Pickleball League is about to be launched on January 4th, with play every Thursday afternoon thereafter until the end of March. Our Women’s Doubles team is co-captained by Kim Boestam and Andrea Rifkin, while the Men’s team is co-captained by Dean Wiese and Clark Shewfelt. With quality leadership like this, and the impressive talent of our players, this inaugural season of the League should be something to watch.
In addition to this new competition, we’ll be playing in inter-club matches about every two weeks, like we did last season. These matches are structured as combination of competitive efforts within a more social setting (several times we lunched with the other folks after dinking and banging our butts off).
Sooo, let’s get to the courts and prepare for the fight and fun. Also, we’ll be putting forth here some videos, like the Joe Baker’s one below. Click on it and listen to one of the most informative pickleball gurus (with explanations in the most careful monotone presentation ever invented).
